I often want to kick myself for only shooting Polaroids of this scene. But then again .....
Flowers have long been a source of inspiration. As a young photographer at 16 it was the easiest subject to engage. All I had to do was go in my backyard and explore.
Years later I still enjoy photographing flowers and my wife, Shannon, is a floral designer amongst other artistic pursuits. We live blocks away from the DTLA flower mart and every Saturday, Shannon goes to the mart to bring back fresh flowers for the loft. I love to watch her work and experiment with her arrangements .
I figured I would start recording them:
Today Ceci decided to make my portrait . She actually directed this shoot. Enjoy!
